7 Things to Consider
Buying a camper in private sale as opposed to from a dealer can present some unique challenges and things to think about. We have gathered 7 tips to consider when buying private sale.
- Research the camper model: Look up reviews and check the manufacturer’s website to learn about the features and potential issues of the camper you are considering.
- Get a pre-purchase inspection: Have a professional mechanic inspect the camper to identify any existing or potential problems.
- Check the title: Make sure that the camper’s title is clear and that the seller is the legal owner of the vehicle.
- Verify the camper’s history: Check the camper’s maintenance records and ask the seller about its history to ensure that it has been well-maintained.
- Test drive the camper: Take the camper for a test drive to ensure that it is in good working condition and that you are comfortable driving it.
- Review the contract: Carefully review the contract before agreeing to purchase the camper. Make sure that all details, including the sale price and any warranties or guarantees, are clearly stated.
- Consider purchasing from a dealership: If you are not comfortable purchasing from a private seller, consider purchasing from a dealership. While it may be more expensive, you will have the added protection of a warranty and the reassurance that the camper has been inspected and is in good condition.
